mt. rushmore

This is a great roadtrip game that I'm going to turn into a mediocre blog entry. Here's the idea: Mt. Rushmore has, theoretically, our 4 greatest Presidents' faces carved into the side of a big mountain. If you were to make a Mt. Rushmore of the 4 greatest (fill-in-the-blank), who would you choose? Here are some examples with my answers:

BASEBALL
Hank Aaron
Willie Mays
Babe Ruth
Ted Williams
NEXT IN LINE: Albert Pujols

BASKETBALL
Larry Bird
Wilt Chamberlain
Michael Jordan
Bill Russell
NEXT IN LINE: Lebron James

FOOTBALL
Jim Brown
Joe Montana
Jerry Rice
Barry Sanders
NEXT IN LINE: Tom Brady

COACHES
Red Auerbach
Vince Lombardi
Bill Walsh
John Wooden
NEXT IN LINE: Mike Krzyzewski

ACTORS
Robert DeNiro
Al Pacino
Kevin Spacey
Jimmy Stewart
NEXT IN LINE: Leonardo DiCaprio

20th-CENTURY AMERICAN WRITERS
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Joseph Heller
J.D. Salinger
John Steinbeck
NEXT IN LINE: Richard Russo

SINGERS
Johnny Cash
Bob Dylan
Paul Simon
James Taylor
NEXT IN LINE: Sam Baker

I suppose I'll listen to some discussion on these since I had a hard time with some of them. And I would love to hear other ideas for categories--we take lots of road trips.

Later gators.
